I have.

On my 96mm car with Lexus SC430 body, I had add 10 grams to the underside of the car to get it up to 175 grams. I molded some lead weights to fit in the chassis.

The window itself was roughly 7 grams lighter (will double check tonight. A review is coming up)

By placing that much weight on the lowest point of gravity I had to rethink my setup a bit.
But yes, they work well.

They are a very nice fit. Only difference on the outside are that the windows are clear.

We leave the windows clear because some lap counters do not read transponder's signal well with tinted glass. You may paint the lexan any color you want.

Here is my F430 with the Atomic lexan windows. I weighed the actual windows before and after and there was a huge difference. It also gives a great green house effect.
